Wanted to try an Alexa as i already have google smart speakers. I am subscribed to amazon prime so i get amazon music but not the premium service, and i have to say that googles free music service has a better selection of music. Now for the echo show 8? It has pretty good sound quality, video quality is good too but how does a person watch anything on it if its on their bedside table? Alexa is ok as a smart AI but nothing is perfect. Some things i was able to ask Alexa before no longer work and the skills? "Alexa, play blah blah on vevo" ... answer " to play blah blah on vevo, say play blah blah on vevo" ummmm i just did??? So not the best smart device but like i said none of them are.
